National Techies Day

National Techies Day on October 3rd encourages students to consider a career in technology.

The world ahead will see ever greater integrations of technology into our day to day lives, and with those innovations will come the need for the truly technologically savvy, those who know their way around this technology driven world and can help those who are perhaps less knowledgeable find their way.

Did you know that October 3 is designated as National Techies Day? 

Techies Day is about more than just the regular technology enthusiast, though. This annual day of commemoration was originally created to promote careers in technology among young people. Technology has always been and will continue to be a vital foundation in progress. In the future, tech will dominate almost everything, so it’s only sensible that our country invests in technology education and skills.

October is also National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Cybersecurity is one of the fastest growing fields in the country and the demand for well-trained cyber pros is higher than ever. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for Information Security Analysts is projected to grow 32 percent from 2018 to 2028 and 21 percent for Software Developers over the same period. 

With so many opportunities in the growing technology industry, anyone seeking a career in technology will be sure to find promising opportunities wherever they look!

You can learn more about careers in cyber by visiting the National Initiative For Cybersecurity Careers and Studies career page niccs.us-cert.gov.

Are you someone who is interested in computer science or technology? Consider pursuing a career in programming, software development, network management, Internet services, or hardware design and manufacture.

Acknowledging the role that technology holds in our society and economy is important and our technology experts are the ones who make it all possible. That's why we celebrate #NationalTechiesDay!
